Angela Romine, Enliven Nailcare and Massage's resident massage therapist, graduated magna cum laude from Antonelli College in 2007. Since joining the spa, she has contributed her talents toward helping clients live with less pain. Just outside her private massage room, a sunlit studio plays host to mani-pedis and cosmetic treatments. A wall with giant floral designs sets the backdrop for two richly padded pedicure chairs, and hardwood floors provide a slick surface for wheeled manicure chairs and Rosey the robot maid. Overall, the space has a nature-inspired aesthetic, with wicker furnishings and organic decorations bearing various shades of green.
Creating Waves Salon describes itself as a place "where affordability meets style," and thanks to its team of savvy stylists, great style is certainly bound to happen. Co-owner Kimberly Bauer thrives on creating new, fun looks for her clients, using her expertise as a Paul Mitchell master colorist and cutting and texturizing specialist. The beauty team at Creating Waves Salon also includes an aesthetician and nail technician, who extend the salon's pampering services past hair.
When Angela Cash first decided to go to nail school, she did it, "just for fun". Twelve years later, she's still having a blast as the owner and head nail artist at Simplicity Salon, where she oversees a beauty team ranging from a recent Paul Mitchell Academy graduate to a seasoned hair styling veteran of 35 years. To keep clients looking chic from head to toe, Angela's staff pulls from an arsenal of brand name products including Goldwell hair color, Moroccanoil, OPI Axxium nail polish, and Tammy Taylor Nails. When it comes to skin care, the Dermalogica line helps the salon's aestheticians customize each anti-aging facial or microZone treatment, while mineral makeup by Weightless lends a finishing touch to faces without smothering them with oils, talc, dyes, or creamed corn. Other services include custom spray tans by SunFX and full face or body waxing by the salon's resident waxing specialist.
The staff members at Essential Styles have mastered head-to-toe beauty services. They take on unkempt hair with haircuts and relaxers, enlisting the help of Paul Mitchell, Essations, Mizani, and Nairobi Professional products. Or, for an entirely different look, they sew in or bond weaves. For faces, they arch eyebrows and thicken lashes with extensions. Finally, they turn to fingernails and toenails, rounding out their top-to-bottom treatment menu with manicures, pedicures, and intricate nail art, such as drawings of smaller toenails on larger toenails to mimic a matryoshka doll.
Bryan Beaver has traveled the world in search of beauty. The master stylist and colorist has visited top salons in New York City, Miami, and Paris, where he developed his signature, French-influenced style. Along the way, he’s mentored hundreds of stylists in the ways of cutting-edge fashion and had his work showcased in Elle, Vogue, and on a billboard on the moon.
At home, Bryan oversees a talented staff of stylists, makeup artists, and nail technicians at his salon. He and his team create stylish and wearable looks in private styling stations outfitted with crystal chandeliers and full-length mirrors. The rest of the space is ultra-chic, too, with lime-green walls, minimalist furniture, and colorful artwork.
